01 Jun THE ALABAMA FAMILY RIGHTS ASSOCIATION ASKED ALABAMA GOVERNOR KAY IVEY TO SIGN A HISTORIC FATHER’S DAY PROCLAMATION.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
(l-r) Kenneth Paschal, father and State President Alabama Family Rights Association, Retired U.S. First Sergeant; Krystle Nicole, mother and Ms Ultimate all World Beauties US 2016-2017; Governor Kay Ivey; Karen Jones, aunt and Whom It Concerns, Inc., CEO & Founder; and Dr. Tim Martin, father and Executive Director of Coaching and Life Services at the “Isaak Law Firm” and “Isaak Life Firm”.
On May 31, 2017, Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama signed a proclamation declaring June 18, 2017 as Father’s Day. Kenneth Paschal, Alabama Family Rights Association and Advisory Committee members were present for the event.
This proclamation is the first of its kind by any Alabama Governor acknowledging:
- It is important to give appropriate recognition to past and present fathers for their unique and valuable role in the lives of our children and for providing the foundation for the healthy and social development of our families who are a vital interest and the future of Alabama;
- let us pledge ourselves to making concentrated steps to embrace our fathers and value our children’s need for a father in their daily lives;
The proclamation encourages all Alabamians to recognize the important role fathers play and join together in observing this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.
Data shows that we don’t value fathers enough and it’s harming our kids, families, communities, and state. Special thanks to Governor Ivey for caring about children and families in Alabama. The primary goal of the Alabama Family Rights Association is to educate the public and government officials concerning the importance of equal involvement of both fit parents in a child’s life.
